Kevin Grant Coconuts Band in Mendocino
Kevin Grant of Mendocino is currently the only pan-builder/tuner in Northern California.
Kevin also has a group, the Coconuts, a steelband that plays a lively mix of calypso, soca, latin and original tunes. He says his greatest musical inspiration comes from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Cuba.
The band is comprised of Kevin, arranger on lead pan and double seconds; Annie Lee on the three cello pans; Dalen Anderson on the four bass pans; Dan Albrecht on drum set; Steve Paul on trumpet and percussion; and Paul Schulman on congas.
This core group of six can be expanded with the addition of a three piece horn section and special guests.
